Smartphone app-based Porsche Passport subscription service allows drivers access to a 22-model range

Porsche has launched a subscription service for its cars in the US that allows drivers access to up to 22 different models.

The smartphone app-based scheme, called Porsche Passport, is initially being launched in Atlanta, Georgia. 

Subscription costs $2000 (£1516) for the entry-level Launch package, which provides access to eight models, including the 718 Boxster718 Cayman, Cayenne and Macan S.

The $3000 (£2274) Accelerate package increases the availability to 22 models, including the 911 Carrera S, Cayenne S E-Hybrid, Macan GTS and Panamera 4S.

Included in the price are road tax and registration, insurance and maintenance. A $500 (£379) joining fee is also charged. 

The cars can be delivered or picked up by the subscriber, with same-day pick-ups or future arrangements available through the app. 

There’s no mileage limit, although membership does depend on background and credit checks. The scheme begins in November.

Volvo has also launched a subscription service for its upcoming XC40 small SUV.
